Nicola Hewson

Shop Manager/Guide

Nicola first travelled to the Antarctic in 2009 with Quark Expeditions, since then she has completed over 60 voyages to the southern continent and over 25 expeditions in the Arctic (including 9 trips to the North Pole).  Nicola began her career on the ocean back in 2003 around southern Vancouver Island, she worked as a marine naturalist and spent 8 glorious summers observing the world famous Southern Resident Orcas.  In her ‘off’ season Nicola has volunteered as a marine mammal observer for conservation groups.  When not on the ships these days you can find Nicola at home with her furry canine friends in the beautiful Comox Valley on Vancouver Island, BC Canada
